This book is a dedication for Pre-Rev & Revolutionary War General John Stark, of New Hampshire.

Written on page 25, “Braddock’s plan of the campaign of 1755, consisted of three independent movements…and a third, led by General William Johnson, against Crown Point. The New Hampshire forces, commanded by Colonel Blanchard, were assigned to this expedition.  A corps of rangers, recruited by the famous Robert Rogers (ROGERS RANGERS), was attached to this command.  These men were rugged foresters, experienced in hardships and dangers, and, as marksmen, their aim was deadly.  Of this number, John Stark, though yet a youth, was a man of mark and commissioned as second lieutenant.”  

After a few years, Stark retired (p28), but he was a “delegate to the county congress in January, 1775, and an active and vigilant member of the Committee of Safety of his town…” and events soon afterwards had “Captain John Stark…unanimously elected colonel of one regiment of fourteen companies….” and then subsequently fought during the Revolutionary War.
